Diocesan Spotlight

Preparing for Hurricane Florence

As Hurricane Florence approaches the East Coast, we are in contact with Episcopal Relief and Development and other dioceses along the coast to determine the best ways to help before, during, and after the storm.
 
As the storm gets closer and we know more, we will be in touch with ways we as a diocese can respond. Please refer back to this page for frequent updates concerning Hurricane Florence.

On September 8, Governor Henry McMaster issued an executive order declaring a state of emergency and, along with the S.C. Emergency Management Division, has urged South Carolinians to prepare for the possibility of Hurricane Florence impacting the state. The executive order enables all state agencies to coordinate resources in preparation for Hurricane Florence.
 
People in potentially vulnerable areas should review personal safety plans, including:
 
 
  • Prepare to evacuate if ordered to do so: Residents living in vulnerable areas and those living in mobile homes that are in the storm’s path must plan their evacuation now. Become familiar with evacuation routes, which are marked with special signs. Options include: a hotel, motel, or friend’s home that is outside the vulnerable area or an American Red Cross shelter. Hotels and motels fill up quickly and “out of county” evacuations take time. Fuel cars, keep supplies in vehicles, secure important documents: If the storm approaches South Carolina, individuals and families should fill up their cars with gas. Road maps, nonperishable snack foods, a first-aid kit that includes a supply of your family’s prescription medications, and convenience items such as diapers should be available in the car. Secure important documents in waterproof packaging. According to CNN, Wednesday, Septemeber 12 is the last good day to evacuate. If it is not plausibe for you to evacuate, please take the necessary precautions to ensure that you are well prepared for this storm. 
 
  • Obtain supplies to protect the home: If residents are ordered to evacuate, there will be little time to protect their homes for the storm. Boarding supplies such as wood and shutters should be purchased in advance. Make plans to clear property of outdoor furniture and debris that would damage the home during a hurricane.
 
  • Consider the safety of pets: Pets are not allowed in Red Cross shelters. Individuals and families should plan to board pets with veterinarians, kennels, or other facilities in non-vulnerable areas. Identification and rabies tags should be attached to the pets’ collars.
